I really do like reading but once i get to a boring part i completely stop reading. What are some reading tips you have? and what are some good books to read?

Leave yourself a time not just to read the text but to think about it. From there, ideas will be coming out from your mind. For some reason maybe it will interest you though you find a boring topic it is because you started to think deeper. In addition, have books that is of your interest for you to relate and for texts that you find curious or interesting. Moreover, you could try to read a certain book that was being made into film. I tried it and the more that I spend time reading on the book because I saw it being transformed into a movie. Somehow, I got a motion picture on my mind from the movie based on the book that I am reading.

Hmm, what about a book with no boring parts? :-) Find some crime for example, not too long and with lots of murders. Or you could skip the boring parts and continue on the next chapter? Find some shorter books to try first? Maybe a collection of short stories, then if there's one you find boring, you jump to the next.

Well, I live to read but I too face the situation of"boring parts" sometimes. I simply skip a few pages and pick up the thread again. If I find that the story is not making senses to me I go back to read the "boring parts" else......

You have to discipline yourself to push through the boring parts. Oftentimes, you will find that even the boring part has a purpose to the entire story. It's tough to recommend books to you without knowing what genre you like. I'm typically a mystery fan and love Janet Evanovich, John Grisham and Stephen Frey. Please read, "Beach Girls" by Luanne Rice. She writes relationship novels which typically isn't the genre that I read but I read that book and got hooked on Rice. I've read everything she's written.
